The moral compass

Yet more confirmation that I'm an unreconstructed 'Libertarian'! I'd say that, although this quiz is designed principally for an American audience, it is strikingly accurate for me - I hardly had to think for more than a few seconds before answering any of the questions in the 'long poll', the answers seemed to me to be so clear-cut. It seems, however, that whilst my views on economic liberalism are shared by more than just a vanishing minority (even in socialism-infected Britain!), my views on this when coupled with my similar views on social liberalism are shared by only a very few. Luckily I have lived my life on the basis of my beliefs, though, and have therefore placed myself in the position of being as completely independent of the dependency-culture favoured in this country, by all the major political parties to various degrees, as legislation permits.
